    Those won't get the job done, they are perfect for an oilhead, I have a set and used them often when I owned an 02R1150RT. You need a full set as in my previous post. Get Jim's DVD from him or Beemer Boneyard.

    Every True Value, or Ace Hardware, Sears (if they still exist near you) and O'Reilly, NAPA, or Auto Zone auto parts stores, and 100 other places sell feeler guages.

    Some people may not know the screwdriver under the seat is the oil filler tool. Just remove the shaft from the screwdriver handle.
    I'm glad the salesman pointed this out to me.
    I also purchased the little plastic tool from BMW and leave it on the garage bench.

    yea, i knew about the screwdriver handle. mine was missing.

    I also saw the trick about using your key, but I figured I would just gouge up my filler plug.

    so i went with the combo tool. I keep it in my travel tool kit.

    I like the tool I used for 28 years on the K Bike Brick engine oil filler cap.
    My index finger and thumb. Never left home without it
